Subject: Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) Upcoming Staff Pool Lists/Calendar Certifications for the Rest of State (ROS)

The purpose of this Alert is to remind SSHSP providers that certification of the staff pool list (SPL) and calendar for the Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) is an ongoing, quarterly process. Updates to the staff pool list(s) and calendar will need to be made for the April-June 2021 quarter, even when there are no changes to the current staff pool list.

Districts should log into the RMTS system and confirm the RMTS Coordinator contact information is correct or update the new coordinator’s contact information so they receive current notification from PCG that staff pool lists and calendars can be certified. Public Consulting Group, Inc. (PCG) will be collecting staff pool lists and calendars in the RMTS system as of February 22, 2021. PCG will be sending the RMTS Coordinator Manual, Coordinator Training, Participant Training, and a link to a system demonstration (located on the PCG Claiming System Dashboard under “Resources”) to assist you in submitting your staff pool list and calendar certification.

Staff pool lists and calendar certifications for April-June 2021 will be due March 19, 2021. If staff pool lists and calendar certifications are not submitted by March 19, 2021, PCG will use the last certified and approved staff pool list and calendar that is in the claiming system for the upcoming Apri-June quarter.

If you have any questions or comments regarding this Alert, please contact the NYS Department of Health at (518) 473-2160 or email, the NYS Education Department, Medicaid Unit via email, or your local Regional Technical Support and Assistance Contact.
